Big headed re-done girl

I'm not going to include a photo of her before she was re-done.  She wants to wipe the slate clean of her old life and start fresh.  She'll need new clothes, of course.

I had to take this doll completely apart to re-sculpt and re-paint.  I found a styrofoam ball inside of her head.  I scraped it out.  I never use those any more because I like to cook the paper clay in a 200 degree oven to dry it now.  I originally made this doll in 2009 and I really don't have any memory of sculpting her head.  I think I must have craft-induced amnesia.

Cheddar and Drab Green

Another re-done doll.  I liked Louisa before, but I couldn't resist slapping some gesso and paper clay on her to re-create.  And the drab green fabric needed a doll.
